Telfree screenshot - incoming callThe South Africa-based R&D division of Swiss company Telfree Communications recently developed an app offering a unified communications hub for smartphones. The software is compatible with iPhone and iPod Touch, as well as with a range of other selected smartphones.
The Telfree app is the first app of its kind to allow users to receive calls through it even when it’s not running, thanks to Telfree‘s Push Call technology. Other features include threaded SMS, instant messaging, and social network chat functionality.
Of interest to travellers is the fact that Telfree offers one global flat rate to fixed lines and mobile phones, and is free for calls between registered TelFree accounts – which means no more roaming costs.
To get connected, download the 30-day free trial of Telfree Mobile from the Telfree site, or send an SMS containing the word “œtelfree“ to 39042.
